Meet a Rotorcraft Pro – Matt Zuccaro

Posted by jhadmin

My very first flight was in a fixed-wing, a J-3 Cub, as a 13-year old Civil Air Patrol cadet. My first helicopter flight was in a Hiller OH-23 Ravenas a 19-year old Army Warrant Officer Candidate at Fort Wolters, Texas. Although both flights were unbelievably exciting, the more memorablewas the Hiller OH-23, mostly due to my inability to maintain any level of control over the aircraft. [Read More...]

I am an Addict - Staying Connected in the Air

Posted by jhadmin

Hi my name is Lyn and I’m an addict. There I said it, I’m an addict. This semi-freeing confession elevates me beyond the stage of denial.

My Droid Razr phone. My iPad2. They are always near. Always keeping me connected to everything I enjoy. My business. My family. My music, photos, books, magazines……..everything. [Read More...]

Old Friends

Posted by jhadmin

As a measure of something’s quality or worth you could safely use longevity as a yardstick. I am lucky to own and fly a Robinson R-22 that has an early serial number. N9015V was the 11th R-22 to roll off the assembly line in Torrance, California on January 19, 1980. What makes this fact special to me is that I had been hired by Frank Robinson in 1979 to work for him as a mechanic. I was fresh out of A&P school and as green a helicopter mechanic as a Wenatchee apple. Frank had me assigned to work with Dave Akamine who was one of the first mechanics at Robinson Helicopter Company. Dave would try to keep me out of trouble. [Read More...]
